Register now for the fall chapter of New Directions for Digital Scholarship, coming up on Friday November 15, 3-6pm in the Whitney Humanities Center Lecture Hall, 53 Wall Street.
In the humanities and the social sciences, technology is radically transforming scholarly practice. In light of these developments, scholars are posing new questions as technology continues to alter the horizons of research, knowledge dissemination, public engagement and teaching in unanticipated and sometimes disruptive ways. This forum will examine how scholarship and its supporting institutions might face the upcoming opportunities and challenges of an open, digital, and networked environment.
At the conference, leaders in digital scholarship will explore the implications of computing and communications technology for the humanities and social sciences. They will discuss new directions for digital scholarship and the transformative and innovative role Yale might assume in this rapidly changing scholarly landscape. Yale University Librarian Susan Gibbons will introduce the forum and a number of digital scholarship projects from across the university will be featured.
The keynote speaker is Claire Warwick, Professor of Digital Humanities, University College London.
Other Yale speakers include: Michael Dula on Open Access Scholarly Publishing; Mark Turin and Trip Kirkpatrick on Teaching Across and With Yale’s Himalayan Collections; Lindsay King and Peter Leonard on Mining Digital Magazine Archives; Holly Rushmeier on New Image Analysis Tools for Manuscripts; and Taylor Arnold on Photogrammar, a Yale NEH DH Start-Up Grant Project.
